Cutting veteran's benefits saves the taxpayers money.

Hi folks,

Something that has now stopped surprising me. The neo-cons support the troops, so long as they don't cost too much.

Health Policy Malpractice
By PAUL KRUGMAN


... the Bush administration has restricted access to the V.A. system, limiting it to poor vets or those with service-related injuries. And as for allowing elderly vets to get better, cheaper health care: “Conservatives,” writes Time, “fear such an arrangement would be a Trojan horse, setting up an even larger national health-care program and taking more business from the private sector.”

This is a time-shifted version of being pro-birth but not pro-life -- it's just the standard neo-con self-deception.


How can we wake them up to this?
